It says no such file or directory.where did I go wrong?
Your path, by the looks of it, ought to be
~/Desktop/ rather than
~/ is already the shortcut to
You can also use the
file command to check that the file you are converting already exists. Copy the path and paste it after
file at the shell. You can also shorten the directories, by changing to the folder
cd ~/Downloads mv file ~/Desktop cd ~/Desktop ls ubuntu*iso hdiutil convert -o ubuntu.img -format UDRW ubuntu*iso
The ls command makes sure there is only one file starting with ubuntu and ending in iso on your desktop - you can put the whole file path instead of using the * that I used for brevity if you have more ISO files that match on the desktop.
